I don't think the majority stop caring.....
They just get tired of arguing with someone else about, exactly what it is they care about..
If you stop caring..
You probably never really believed what it was... you thought you cared about.
Yep. And in RL...people can only get taken advantage of so many times...and then they say: Enough!
Numbness sets in.
Apathy is a self defense measure at a certain point.
When you've had enough, reached a breaking point, when caring becomes self-destructive
